Q1 According to your experience, why do you think child counselling is important or necessary?
Childhood is a significant landmark in the life of each individual. Anything that happens at this stage has a direct impact on their later life. The quality of the child's relationship with their parents, siblings and the environment they grow in has a significant impact on their cognitive, emotional and social development.
In today fast pace life, academic and social pressures, family breakdowns, poverty, violence, inadequate care and failure in love and career are the main issues that are likely to cause emotional, physical and mental health issues in the long run.
In these cases, Child counselling is important because it provides the child with an opportunity to learn how to regulate the emotions and understand the connection between their feelings and behaviour in order to have greater control over them. Child counselling helps in promoting self-esteem & confidence, increased social skills and decreases anxiety and depression.
Q2 A small message for the tiny buds that are in the ing stage of their career from your side?
"If speaking is silver; then listening is gold." this is the life mantra that I want to give to all the children out there. Being a good listener will make you learn more as compared to speaking. Always work with honesty and loyalty. Manage the time and have perseverance. Your hard work will surely pay off, that’s why have patience and keep working. Never think for achieving the success on short term notes.
